As a little girl, I had these things in mind which I wanted to be doing. I had plans. I had dreams. I knew back then what I really wanted. Growing up, I took the steps which I thought would take me closer to those things I aspired to have and to be the person I aspired to be.

When I reached young adulthood, I came to realize that it is not easy. Life is never easy. We don't get some of the things that we wanted no matter how hard we worked for it. Sometimes, it's really just not meant to be. We get things which we did not expect. We get both bad and pleasant surprises. We cry and laugh. We win some, we lose some. Life is a battle and you cannot always win.

With all the frustrations, failures, sadness, successes, and happiness that I have experienced, the most important thing is, I learned. Experience, after all - cliche as it may sound, is still and will forever be the best teacher.
Right now, I am still far from the person that I want to be. I still get frustrated because at this age, I haven't accomplished half of the things I had set in mind when I was younger. But I am still very hopeful. I will continue to work hard to be the person that I've always wanted to be.
I may not have all the things that I want, I may not be at the place I want to be and I may not (YET) be the person I've always wanted to be, but I have a lot of reasons be thankful and happy about. I cannot believe that I already have that one thing that I have been looking forward to for months now. I am so happy. I know this is just the start, that this will somewhat be a defining stage of something, and I am just so glad and blessed! I am praying that everything will go according to the plans I made. Please? :)
